Happy Advent! Our time of preparation has begun. The advent wreath is in place both at my home and in our classroom. We have begun our classroom journey of preparing ourselves for the birth of our Savior. We will spend the advent season praying around our advent wreath, reading reflections on the season, and committing ways to help others during this season.
Here is an overview of topics that we hope to be covering in December.
